Nothing to Laugh About is a compilation of his poems from 2015, "Voice In The Round" and poems from 2016, "Comic Invasion." Bob Holman: "Now that spoken word and performance poetry have pushed poetry back into the public eardrum, now that poetry slams and hip hop, Billy Collins and Garrison Keillor have all conspired to create a US Poetry Renaissance, dear LARRY GOODELL can lean back on his caterpillar legs and other poetry costumes and ask, "Where ya been?" Goodell, as unknown at 82 as he was at 20, has a half-century's worth of revolutionary poetics under his belt, and is laughing all the way to Utopia. Nobody has done more, nor been recognized less, than this Legend of Placitas, New Mexico."
